24 Hour Jail Release 214-402-4364

The client was arrested for allegedly having possession of marijuana. The State of Texas believed it had a relatively easy case to prove. My client was charged with a Class B misdemeanor–punishable up to 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.

After working on the case to develop some helpful points for his case, we were able to gain leverage in negotiations and prosecutor agreed to reduce the Class B charge to a Class C misdemeanor paraphernalia charge. Also, my client received deferred adjudication on this charge as part of the negotiation. This essentially reduced the offense to the equivalent of a traffic ticket. And following a 6 month non-reporting probation period (basically just keep your nose clean during the probation period), my client will be able to get the charge off his record–just like it never happened. You can remove a Class C deferred off your record, but you can’t remove a Class B misdemeanor from your record, so this reduction was a huge relief for my client.

So what began for my client as a serious case with serious consequences ended up as something he can expunge off his record–as if the arrest never occurred. As you can expect, my client was relieved and very pleased with the result.
